La condition militaire
Si la condition militaire est une, elle connaît des déclinaisons multiples. Quelque 300 000 militaires servent au sein des trois armées, de la gendarmerie et de services communs, tous organismes dont les missions, les traditions et les cultures leur sont propres, compte tenu de la variété de leur histoire et du milieu physique et humain dans lequel ils exercent leurs activités opérationnelles. Ainsi les fonctions et les conditions d'emploi des militaires, hommes ou femmes, sont multiples: grenadier-voltigeur, sous-marinier, pilote, gendarme mobile, pompier, médecin, ingénieur, au quartier ou en camp d'entrainement, en métropole, outre-mer ou en opération extérieure... Tout en conservant une référence constante à ces principes fondateurs de la condition militaire, le présent ouvrage propose de « passer en revue » les éléments concrets essentiels qui la caractérisent, afin de permettre au lecteur d'en mieux cerner la consistance réelle.
Syria s Uprising and the Fracturing of the Levant
As an upbeat and peaceful uprising quickly and brutally descended into a zero-sum civil war, Syria has crumbled from a regional player into an arena in which a multitude of local and foreign actors compete. The volatile regional fault lines that run through Syria have ruptured during this conflict, and the course of events in this fragile yet strategically significant country will profoundly shape the future of the Levant.
An Equitable Framework for Humanitarian Intervention
This book aims to resolve the dilemma regarding whether armed intervention as a response to gross human rights violations is ever legally justified without Security Council authorisation. Thus far, international lawyers have been caught between giving a negative answer on the basis of the UN Charter's rules ('positivists'), and a 'turn to ethics', declaring intervention legitimate on moral grounds, while eschewing legal analysis ('moralists'). In this volume, a third solution is proposed. The idea is presented that many equitable principles may qualify as 'general principles of law recognised by civilised nations' - one of the three principal sources of international law (though a category that is often overlooked) - a conclusion based upon detailed research of both national legal systems and international law. These principles, having normative force in international law, are then used to craft an equitable framework for humanitarian intervention. It is argued that the dynamics of their operation allow them to interact with the Charter and customary law in order to fill gaps in the existing legal structure and soften the rigours of strict law in certain circumstances. It is posited that many of the moralists' arguments are justified, albeit based upon firm legal principles rather than ethical theory. The equitable framework proposed is designed to provide an answer to the question of how humanitarian intervention may be integrated into the legal realm. Certainly, this will not mean an end to controversies regarding concrete cases of humanitarian intervention. However, it will enable the framing of such controversies in legal terms, rather than as a choice between the law and morality. '...has potential to become one of the most important books in public international law of the decade, or in a generation'.

Africa and the International Criminal Court
The book deals with the controversial relationship between African states, represented by the African Union, and the International Criminal Court. This relationship started promisingly but has been in crisis in recent years. The overarching aim of the book is to analyze and discuss the achievements and shortcomings of interventions in Africa by the International Criminal Court as well as to develop proposals for cooperation between international courts, domestic courts outside Africa and courts within Africa. For this purpose, the book compiles contributions by practitioners of the International Criminal Court and by role players of the judiciary of African countries as well as by academic experts.
Legions of Peace
The huge number of security forces stationed around the world as United Nations peace- keepers is second only to the global military deployments of the USA. But most UN peacekeepers come from the emerging powers and developing states that comprise the global South. This is the first book to analyze this phenomenon at the international level. Such unprecedented deployments show that peacekeeping is the most widely tolerated use of force in international affairs today. Far from signaling progress towards global governance, Legions of Peace argues that UN peacekeeping must be understood in the context of continuing economic inequality and the uneven distribution of global power. Philip Cunliffe contends that through UN peacekeeping Western states have used their domination of international institutions to harness the armed forces of the global South. In so doing, Western states seek to reduce the political and military costs of hegemony and stave off their inevitable, long-term decline in power. This strategy has profound political implications. Instead of transcending the "scourge of war," by globalizing peacekeeping the UN has made peace dependent on the extensive and sustained deployment of armed force--a development that bodes ill for the future.

The EU Neighbours 1995 2015
"This Chaillot Paper charts the changes that have taken place in the countries and regions adjacent to the EU over the past two decades, and analyses how the upheavals of recent years have altered the EU's relationship with and approach to its eastern and southern neighbours. Coming at a time when the new EU leadership has launched what amounts to a complete 'reboot' of the European Neighbourhood Policy as well as a wider review of the EU's foreign and security policy priorities, it shows that the Union still as an important role to play in these regions, albeit a less exclusive and possibly less 'magnetic' one than assumed a decade ago"--Publisher's web site.
